This finale & ARROW's were the best of the season IMO. Both felt like they have a clear plan for every character's development. At this point, I wouldn't mind if Nick didn't get his GRIMMness back for a while because we have Trubel, & the feeling that there is a potential army of other Grimms out there desperate for some guidance. The series is called GRIMM after all; not NICK. The girl hasn't even been trained by Monroe yet. Last week, people were talking about a Trubel spin off. Kudos to the writers for showing us that her story can be told on GRIMM to parallel's Nick's development into the Giles or Obi-Wan of the show (if that's how they want to go). On the other characters, I agree that RENARD MUST LIVE. The entire royal mess needs to end with him cleaning out their houses, and raising his baby girl in a castle. There just isn't anyone else who speaks French, Russian & German that well & looks so freaking hot doing it. So, yeah, keep him. Sgt. Wu keeps getting closer to the truth. Next season is his time because maybe he can be promoted to detective w/Hank while Nick becomes acting captain during Renard's recuperation. Nick will have to step up & possibly be in a higher position of power at the Portland PD to smooth over Trubel's involvement in decapitating the FBI agent & calling in Renard's shooting. The girl wasn't wearing gloves & her sword will be taken as evidence. LOVED how Monroe & Rosalee's wedding was allowed to finish & their families were so supportive. The original dress was NOT flattering for her. Her new dress was perfect! The only plot point that felt off for me in the finale was Adalind. I know Adalind is desperate to reunite w/her baby. But, she was actually feeling grateful to Nick & Juliette at one point. She made the connection that they help the Resistance, and did a lot to keep her baby away from the Royals. She may not trust Renard. But, she should have said something to Nick about Victor's plans because she *thinks* she OWES him, Juliette, Monroe & Rosalee for sheltering her & her baby when she needed it most.
NAIL GUN, FTW! In true Whedon fashion, sometimes the most low-tech way to win a fight is the most effective...and most memorable. Remember the "Puny God!" highlight of THE AVENGERS? Don't overthink the resolution. Simple is best!
The reviewer completely skipped over Ramona murdering her twin sister, Beatrice, as did the writers. This was a disappointing episode. One minute everyone is staring at Beatrice's bloody mouth. The next, they are running around the house like rats in a maze, all at Ramona's whims. If this spirit was kept behind a wall for so long without any influence, why know is it suddenly all-powerful? Don't like Ramona, and all the time she is taking away from the 4 leads!
I read somewhere that the show cannot use the term "mutants" in relation to Skye's possible origins, as the comics might. So, instead they could be using the term "monsters."
I like the way you think!
The ruby slippers were specific to the 1939 MGM movie, and protected by copyright. The book is now in public domain. But, its contents can only be used if they are book-specific. Hence, the silver slippers, which is what Dorothy wore in the book.
I've revised my earlier opinion & think Ward did kill the dog...but not to prove to Garrett that he was strong. The entire deer hunting scene was foreshadowing what Ward was going to do. He killed the dog from a distance because he knew Garrett would refuse to bring it back & was probably going to leave it to starve in the wilderness. The dog depended on Ward for its survival. So, either he give it a merciful death running free, as the dog enjoyed, or do an up close betrayal. Garrett forced Ward to chose which way the dog would die. So, he chose the most humane one he could given the circumstances.
It's kind of sad that Emma turned her own "superpower" into a cave in which she is hiding. The lady has the ability to root out lies. But, she herself would rather choose to live a lie in NYC, pretending to have no outside connections or responsibilities to a family that her son obviously loves. In the first season, it made sense that a person who was on her own her entire life, growing up in foster care, relying on herself her entire adult life, would have trust issues. But, come on - it's been years now, and people have risked their lives for her, and she for them. It feels like she's a smaller person emotionally than she was when this show started. She isn't learning in that respect; she's shrinking & becoming more stingy w/her affection. Regina & Snow are the ones who are learning & growing; actually changing. As for her relationship w/Henry, does she know she's the parent of a teenager? He is old enough to have a say in where he lives at his age. No, he isn't going to go where his mommy says. Why should he? She wants to deny the truth about him & who he is. Nice example for your kid, Emma - choosing fear & lies over being brave & truthful.
Just an observation...am I the only who thinks that if Ward had killed the dog, many viewers would consider him absolutely evil? It's strange how killing a pet is unforgivable to many people while killing X number of SHIELD agents is forgivable as long as Ward makes googly eyes at Skye.
FANTASTIC episode! I loved how they were basically going low-tech this episode, with whiteboards, black markers, & Howling Commando tech. Maybe it's just me. But, I followed the whiteboard explanation much better than I have any of the explanatory dialogue & fancy transparent computer diagrams in the past few episodes. One look at that thing with all its arrows, & yep, I understood. Thank you for showing that Mike Peterson still has some humanity left. He hasn't been given a choice. But, I think he's biding his time & will chose to strike back when he can do the most damage to HYDRA. He looks just miserable being their puppet. As for FitzSimmons, Fitz still had the quarter. So, Coulson could still locate them. I don't know how they'd have any time to pick them up though. Ward can only be redeemed IMO if he comes to realize that it's his attachment to *Garrett* that is his weakness. He survived in that wilderness by his wits & his affection for another living creature. That dog gave him strength; not Garrett. Hopefully his affection for his former SHIELD team will make him see the light, too.
